  1. Aoba just preps you for many of the characteristics of the rest of the line; Good concealment, shitty torpedo angles, tier for tier guns tend to have slightly less range than other cruisers. High HE alpha, slower reload and increased fire chance. (excl. mogami 155mm which gets high dpm instead of alpha) Basically you look for targets of opportunity to blap and if you start to get focused you drop into concealment or kite away.

  2. Basically everything you learn tiers 5-7 changes when you hit tier 8-10. Probably the most drastic things being accuracy and damage of guns followed by concealment mixed with consumables like radar. A good example is American cruisers where their concealment range is equal to their radar range. Meaning if you outspot them all they have to do is activate radar and if they have a the radar module it gives them roughly a minute of keeping you lit for the enemy team. Obviously if you aren't positioned correctly you just die. Because of this how you approach caps is a little different than at lower
  3. Saw one in my Khaba yesterday and his attempts at dropping me were not successful. In part I don't think he was leading me enough plus his planes felt a bit squishy as my AA was able to account for 14 of his planes. Naturally I burned him to death for his insolence.
  4. When Kiev was tier 7 I actually got a CQC ribbon once dueling another DD at close range. lol
  5. The thing that confuses me is everything I've read on the ship historically speaking indicates 4 x 2 turrets, not 3 x 2? What gives?
  6. This is a sample of the kind of shooting angle I was talking about where you can wreck cruisers with Mutsu AP.
  7. Depends on the range really. At extreme long ranges I've gotten double cits on BBs like Fuso and New Mexico. At close ranges I've cit wrecked cruisers, however the trick to that is to hit them at an angle to minimize risk of overpens. Flat broadside actually isn't ideal for these guns when shooting soft targets.
  8. I got one in a Christmas box too, however my experience has been pretty good so far; 7 games, 71% WR averaging 79K damage 1.7 kills per game.
  9. As I recall, the Colorado and Nagato can overmatch each other's bows so if you don't have any angling it's possible to eat a citadel from the front.
  10. Operations are nice sometimes to just blow off some steam and not have to worry as much about brain dead teammates.
  11. Yeah the GC is a strong ship, so if you got one for free good on you.
  12. This plus a lot of times if there is a special crate event it checks to see what's in your port and re-rolls for a different ship. This happened to me twice this event with the medium boxes probably because I already had the Leningrad and Scharnhorst. Got the Ohotnik which is meh and a Perth, which is fun, but hardly OP but also got a Kutozov which by itself is worth the $47 I paid for the 20 x $3. Everything else I got is just gravy at this point.
  13. Yeah, I guess I wasn't clear with my earlier comment but I do agree with your point that how the scene was assembled was heavy handed. Too much lead up. I liked the concept of Kylo getting the better of Snoke because that was something Vader never managed with Sidious. So in essence although Kylo feels inferior to his grandfather he actually isn't so it's a nice contrast; Anakin was arrogant and that led to Obi Wan maiming him where as Kylo feels inferior and aspires to be a worthy successor but has nagging doubts about his abilities. But even with that limitation he manages to assassina
  14. The Last Jedi is a very uneven film with a lot of the sins originating in the writing, most of which have been touched upon earlier in this thread. There are a couple additional points I'd like to make. I think the Poe mutiny sub plot was also pretty terrible and kind of goes against how he was set up in TFA. He was the guy entrusted to find Luke's map. I doubt they would have sent their 'loosest cannon' on such a critical mission. I understand the need to have character faults but why not go the 'loyal to a fault' route instead of 'guy who does his own thing no matter what' especially wh
